Argentine Tango School

“El baile de los domingos” by Lucio Demare y su Orquesta Típica with Raúl Berón in vocals, 1943.

Lunfardo prohibido, fileteado plate.

Prohibition of a language

Lunfardo, slang of the Argentines

On October 14, 1943, under the military government, radio censorship began for tango lyrics written in Lunfardo.

These obligatory modifications in the radio broadcast of pages of the genre, caused the deformation of the lyrics and titles that, with the intention of moralizing, became a nonsense factory, duplicating the original lyrics.

This song was called originally “‘Bailongo’ de los domingos”.
